Gateway East Plan & Route 9 Corridor

Gateway East

Update - 9.15.16

Revised 25% Design Plans for the Gateway East project have been submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.  

It is expected that MassDOT will conduct at 25% Design Public Hearing in the the months ahead.  

Update - 5.10.2016:

The Brookline Board of Selectmen voted to authorize town
staff to submit revised 25% design plans to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.  It is expected that MassDOT will conduct a 25% Design Public Hearing in summer 2016.  There will be more information and public outreach after a date for the hearing is finalized.  

See a concept of the revised 25% design that was presented to the Board of Selectmen here.     
The Gateway East project has received a Federal Fiscal Year 2017 funding slot on the Boston region MPO's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The MPO is currently in the process of programming the FY 2017-2021 TIP, and it is possible the project may be moved back a year from 2017 to 2018.   Project review by MassDOT will again resume once a revised 25% design filing is submitted to MassDOT in early June 2016.   

Town/MassDOT Public Meetings: 

The Town of Brookline and MassDOT collaborated on a public process to revisit 25% plans in order to explore enhanced bicycle and pedestrian accommodation.  You can see a summary of that process here.
